Jim Kay’s illustrated edition now reads like a newspaper from the Wizarding World.

 

Finally, our experience reading an actual Harry Potter book will feel like the characters themselves do when reading The Daily Prophet, moving pictures and all.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is now available as an ebook featuring whimsical animations, thanks to Amazon’s Kindle in Motion technology. The new Kindle in Motion ebook takes Jim Kay’s 2015 illustrated edition of the book and animates a few sequences, such as the portrait of Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore. Check out the trailer above to see what else you can expect from the ebook.

“There’s a painter that was active in England in Henry the Eighth’s court called Holbein, and he’d do these beautiful oil portraits of very wealthy members of the court. What I like about early portrait painting is that you often have images, objects that are representative of that person’s trade or character,” Kay told EW in 2015 about the Dumbledore drawing. “So in Dumbledore’s portrait, the dried plant there is honesty, but on the honesty is also a little camouflaged praying mantis insect. It’s saying there is honesty, but with a catch, with Dumbledore.”

Aside from Dumbledore, this version of Sorcerer’s Stone will also feature animations of Harry and Hagrid traveling by boat, or the smoke wafting off the train at Platform 9 and 3/4.

The Kindle in Motion version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is available now, exclusively through Amazon.

Today, August 26, probably one of the most hated Harry Potter characters celebrates her birthday: (Professor) Dolores Jane Umbridge. Right from the start, from the first line the character was introduced by, J.K. Rowling succeeded in making the readers dislike Umbridge. Not only as the defence against dark arts teacher, the headmistress, the High Inquisitor, the Senior Undersecretary or whatever role she took in the Harry Potter series, Dolores Umbridge successfully managed to leave a negative impression with everything she said or did.

“When they entered the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom they found Professor Umbridge already seated at the teacher’s desk, wearing the fluffy pink cardigan of the night before and the black velvet bow on top of her head. Harry was again reminded forcibly of a large fly perched unwisely on top of an even larger toad.”

But, the Harry Potter series wouldn’t be so admired and such a successful saga if it hasn’t been for its villains as much as for its heroes. Dolores plays a huge part in the novels and the movies and will always be a celebrated part of the series. Therefore, happy birthday, Dolores Umbridge.

Happy birthday to Percy Weasley! Today, August 22, the third son of Molly and Arthur Weasley turns 41 years old.

Percy is probably the most ambitious of all the Weasley children, but – and that should be claimed with the utmost caution – the least liked. Many people disliked him from the first novel on. As a prefect at Hogwarts, Percy took the job very seriously and didn’t believe that his brothers Fred and George would get very far with their jokes and games. His great ambitions led to him working at the Ministry of Magic, even for the Minister of Magic himself. His rise caused a rift between him and his family as he denied that the Minister kept tabs of the Weasleys and Dumbledore. This loyalty to the Minister was a reason why fans of the franchise really began to dislike Percy. However, the fans’ attitude towards him may have changed after he comes to senses when the Ministry falls to the Death Eaters during the return of the Dark Lord.
